Hi I would like to know a simple way to read the info from another website and show on my own.

I cant use iframe as I need to change the background, and It must be secure as we get so many attempts to hack our site daily.

the site I wish to read is, ultimateteam.co.uk and only the part where it says.   NEXT HAPPY HOUR:
To be confirmed  

This is located on the right at the top.
How can I show this info on my own site?

Here is an easy how to:

I love this for it's simplicity, it will take a few minutes to grasp but you can simply invoke that as a part of your php in the section of your page and echo the result of your find.

Does your server have PHP installed on it  ?

Do you understand PHP?

If you answered yes to these question then it is easy.

There will be no need to paste this will load automatically each time someone loads your page:

i.e  your page page.php loads
this piece of script is invoked
webpage at http://website.com is read and parsed
The string you are searching for is found and it loads when your site is loaded.
